What does a Fuel Pump do?

The fuel pump is part of the engine's fuel system and serves to supply fuel to the engine for combustion at the level required by the engine. In most cars, the pump is usually located near or in the fuel tank.

What does a fuel pump replacement involve?

  • Mechanic will read the ECU for possible fault codes related to the fuel system.
  • Mechanic will inspect the fuel supply system and the fuel pump.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the fuel pump.
  • Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced (like the fuel filter).
  • Mechanic will inspect the fuel system again for any leaks and test drive the car.
  • Mechanic will make adjustments if necessary.

Can I do an in-tank fuel pump replacement myself?

Unless you are a qualified mechanic with the required skills, training and equipment to do the job, we strongly recommend an in-tank fuel pump replacement is only carried out by a professional mechanic. ClickMechanic can help get you a vetted and local mechanic to carry out the work. Just enter your postcode and your car's registration number at the top of this page and select the work needed to get an instant fixed price up front.

What are the signs that your fuel pump is bad?

  • When the engine runs rough.
  • When the 'Check Engine' light on the car's dashboard is on.
  • When the car has performs unreliably under acceleration.
  • When there is a whizzing noise coming from near the fuel tank.
  • When starting the car is troublesome.
  • When the car leaks fuel.

How long will an in-tank fuel pump replacement take?

On average, in-tank fuel pump replacement times can range from 1 hour to 1.5 hours with an average of around 1 hours. The time that the job takes will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

How often should I replace a fuel pump?

Over time, due to continuous use, the fuel pump can wear and eventually fail leading to an unstable flow of fuel being directed towards the engine. Depending on whether the car has a mechanical or an electronic fuel pump a number of issues can arise.

Sometimes it can be that the fuel pump does not pump an adequate amount of fuel to the engine, causing the engine to sputter, with the car slowing down and speeding up constantly. Similarly, it can be that the car suddenly surges forward when driving at a constant speed. It usually means that parts of the pump have worn or that its electrical and elements connections let through an irregular current. In other cases a fuel pump can malfunction completely, which means that no fuel is pushed to the engine, as a result the engine will not start or cut out.

That said, problems with the fuel supply are not necessarily always down to the pump, there can be a variety of issues (like a clogged fuel filter).

Should you experience problems with the fuel supply, then it is advisable to have the fuel system and the fuel pump inspected and, if necessary, have the fuel pump replaced. Seeing that the fuel pump is especially prone to wear it should always be replaced as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

Can you drive with a bad fuel pump?

If you suspect there is any issue with the fuel pump or there are concerns about its age or condition, book an inspection with a professional mechanic as soon as possible, driving the vehicle may lead to further complications or damage and may leave you stranded if the fuel supply to the engine is impaired.

Is a faulty in-tank fuel pump an MOT failure?

Yes, it can result in an MOT failure as the fuel system is inspected by the MOT tester to check for fuel leaks and secure pipes and hoses.
